    I don't know if it's called the same thing in AE but in Premiere Pro 2 the effect is called Color Pass. It is located in the Video Effects->Adjust folder. As both programs are made by Adobe it will probably be in AE aswell.

    i think some explanation or at least, some clarification is needed after that statement. What makes you say that? What's wrong with the effect mentioned that makes you say that? I've no experience of the effect so can't offer any opinion so I'm just hoping you have a constructive reason for that statement or maybe you'll simply go for the "it just is!" explanation. I'm curious.

    Hmm, interesting, I've used it a few times and find it fine. So long as the colour selection is done carefully, and the settings arranged to capture the colour scope either side of the particular sample also done carefully, then de-colouring the remainder to the required degree also sorted nicely, then it's really good. The only time it doesn't work well is when there is too much of the wanted colour hanging around in other areas, which is a product of the makeup of colours, not the program. Of course the shooting should be done with the effect in mind in the first place, try and do it retrospectively and your in trouble, especially with blues as it happens, it's pretty omnipresent.
